MANILA – Xian Lim and Ryza Cenon are set to work opposite each other for the first time in a movie.
The two will star in the upcoming film “Sa Muli,” to be produced by Viva Films.
Lim and Cenon sat with Viva Films executives last Friday for the story conference where they learned more about the theme of the movie.
A drama fantasy, “Sa Muli” was written and will be directed by former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Fifth Solomon.
Speaking to PEP, Solomon said he thought of doing a story that centers on rebirth or reincarnation mainly because of the documentaries he has watched on YouTube.
“Kapag madaling-araw, hindi ako makatulog. Minsan, lumalabas sa timeline sa YouTube yung documentaries and may mga napanood ako na bata na four-years old and naaalala nila yung mga dati nilang buhay, babae sila sa dati nilang buhay. Sabi ko, 'Hala, ano kaya ako sa dating buhay?' Mapapatanong ka rin, di ba?” he said.
For his directorial debut under Viva Films, Solomon said he’s very happy because it is a collaborative effort.
“Actually kinabahan ako noon. Ang ginawa ko, tumungga ako ang isang kape, tapos inilabas ko ang pagkabakla ko kasi mas matapang yung bakla kaysa lalaki kasi iba-iba ang personality ko. Sabi ko babaklain ko ito kasi mga big bosses [ang kaharap ko]. So okay naman ako. Naikuwento ko sa kanila ng maayos,” he said.
Except for the two lead stars and the director, Viva Films has yet to reveal other details about “Sa Muli.”
